Re: Quadway Hoops


The decision which CNSW made was to allow the installation of Quadway Hoops at Tempe following discussions with the CNSW Tournament Committee. Most of us cann't actually see any problems with the Quadways but did not see any need for Clubs to replace perfectly good white hoops because the Club felt it would be disadvantaged or was being pressurised by some of its players, and this position was communicated to Clubs. If a Club wants or needs to replace existing hoops with new hoops then it is logical to purchase Quadways. Some clubs use a combination of quadways and white hoops particularly if lawns need to be halved. As more Quadways are purchased then theoretically more second hand white hoops of a reasonable quality become available. There will be many clubs both here and abroad who never convert to Quadways.

Dear Mary,

Tim and Margaret are right.  I can't see why there has been so much fuss.  The Atkins Quadway hoops are clearly better than any others produced up to now.  I expect everyone will eventually convert to them, but there is no hurry as they are not significantly different, just better made.

At Nowra we will not be buying Quadway hoops we already have 6 sets of Dawson hoops and as we are working towards building two new courts this is our only priority now. I have played the quadways and really can’t see what all of the fuss is about, our division 3 pennant team had never even seen the hoops until the finals last year but this didn’t stop them winning the finals

1) no. It will either ruin the quadway hoop holes or unnessarily add hoop holes to the court.

2) yes.

3) no. Quadways are superior hoops and are being used at more and more locations including Cairnlea, VIC & SACA SA

4) yes to the question you didn't ask. Buy Quadways for Mosman.

We notice that CNSW has not made a definite decision on whether all
clubs need to change to Quadway Hoops. However, last year one of our
GC teams got to the semi-finals with the finals being played at
Tempe. Tempe only uses Quadway Hoops which many players find quite
different to the old Australian Croquet Company or Davidson hoops
(painted or powder-coated white).

Therefore, do we

1 Bring our own hoops to Tempe (for finals)

2 Request an afternoon to practice with the Quadway Hoops

3 Request CNSW to stick with the old-style hoops until a decision is
made to adopt Quadway Hoops across the State or even Australia.

What do you think?
